Victory? Better study up. This is the opening salvo in the brewing showdown between the Feds v. States that will likely end up with SCOTUS.

It's still illegal under Federal law and as such, the Feds have cross border authority to enforce - regardless of what the state law is.

Will be an interesting thing to watch though. Lots of questions to resolve - like, if an employer is in a business involving public safety, can the employer make it a condition for termination or non hiring? I think the answer will be yes. I do know that in the armed services it won't matter what any state law becomes. You will not be granted a security clearance and in many ratings/MOSs that is condition for discharge.

"It's still illegal under Federal law and as such, the Feds have cross border authority to enforce - regardless of what the state law is."

I'm aware of this, but I don't think they are going to interfere this time. At least not at first. As long as everything goes smoothly, which I think it well. A spokesman for the governor's office said it could be legal within two months, but that may be hopeful thinking.

So you think the armed services will never change their policies regarding herb, even if all 50 states and federal law legalize it?

Not true unfortunately! They have been busting people in Ca. etc, for a long time now despite the state laws. Lucky for them they have people like Tony Serra and his army of lawyers defending them.
The great thing is that now that Mass. and a third of the country has joined and Co. and Wa. has gone the extra step further just makes it so much more difficult and expensive for the feds to continue their anti pot crusade and maybe someday soon they'll finally concede their idiotic position.
We shall see.

What's not true? Yes, I know the federal gov't has shut down dispensaries and prosecuted people in states where it's been legalized medically. That's why I said "this time" I don't think they will interfere. Hopefully they will realize that this is the direction the country is moving in, and will see how much money it will generate.
